We are very pleased to announce that Lucy Siegle, a BBC TV One Show and Guardian/Observer journalist on ecological and ethical living issues, is delighted to give our members a virtual talk on 22 July 2020. Lucy gave a library talk and presentation at the Club last November on climate change and plastic pollution following the launch of her book ‘Turning the Tide on Plastic’.

Lucy Siegle is a climate and environmental journalist and communicator known for her writing for The Observer for many years, as the ‘green’ reporter for The One Show on BBC 1 and for The True Cost, the Netflix feature documentary on the fashion industry. She went to 15 schools, growing up primarily in Mullingar and Bray in Ireland and the Northwest and Southwest of England before attending London University and Central School of Speech and Drama in London in the 1990s and never leaving (the city. She did leave college). She is the author of two books To Die For: Is Fashion Wearing out the World  and Turning the Tide on Plastic. She is a campaigner for more environmental coverage in the media and is the co-host of So Hot Right Now, a weekly podcast on climate and media in association with Frontline Club and produced by Sony Music. She is a keen endurance runner, running for Anthony Nolan in the 2020 London Marathon, lives on the non-tidal Thames in greater London where she collects plastic daily from her kayak. She is a trustee for the environmental NGO, Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) in Cornwall. In the meantime – Here is the link to the podcast series just launched by Lucy and Tom Mustill.

‘SO HOT RIGHT NOW’ is a podcast Lucy made with her friend and colleague Tom Mustill about communicating climate and nature issues. It is already climbing the charts – thanks to David Attenborough who is their first guest. Follow the link to hear their 30 minutes interview with him:
